Sometimes its better talking to myself than having nobody to talk with.

I remember when you joined us on day 1. Do you remember how you were then? You should read back. You are doing amazing. Congrats on day 12.

Night.

I've been really spacey lately. Even more than usual ! I've always been a bit ditzy, but this is getting ridiculous! I keep losing things (briefly lost my purse at a store today, for example) and forgetting what I'm doing when I walk from one room to the next.

Thanks Delizadee.
Me too. My spelling and proof reading sucks. It never used to be. I'm quite OCD about that usually (OCD about many things actually) but lately I just can't see the errors despite checking. And I lose things. And forget. Grrrrr.

Good luck at the class.

Keep knocking those days out SAS.

Im into bed now. This motel bed isn't too bad. Hopefully my pipe is finished by Sunday then we can go home. I've got my darling boy asleep on one side and coco licking my feet at the end of the bed - disgusting dog lol. I had to smuggle her into the motel unit because they have a no dog policy. I'm so lucky she doesn't molt hair/fur, doesn't bark and is fully house trained.....otherwise they would find out. I just sneak her out twice a night around the corner on the small grassy patch so she can do her business...and pick it up if course. 8n the morning i sneak her in the car and we go home to check up on progress. I know, not good disobeying their rules but hey there was nowhere else for her to go. I don't have $50 per day for a dog kennel right now. Not on top of 3 grand for the DAMN pipe.

Ot bahaha... 😂and coco... I'm glad I'm not the only one 😄

Yeah there's always another time. You can save up as you see fit and go and visit her when you're ready. If that's 3 months away or whatever then pffttt it's OK. Missing this event is nothing in the scheme of things hun. Not when you're looking at the rest of your life sober and everything wonderful that will come with that. Just tell her it's nothing to do with her, it's just youve got stuff going on that's extremely important. And that it's just wrong timing.

Arh thats little ones for you. Its no biggie.

Rest assured you are not the only one! I'm like you in that if people read and or reply great. If not, it beats nobody to talk with lol. Sounds a bit mad but it's not. Not everybody has heaps of people to talk with.

Go straight back to bed. Sleep is important. Don't worry about us lot. You need your sleep.

Night

"You all." Regional dialect originating in the Southern US, but widely used in many other areas of the US. It's derived from the curious fact that English does not have a plural form of "you."

Brooklyn, Queens, Bronx boroughs have a similar plural "you," known as "youse."

It's something the southern yanks like to say... short for You All. I don't ever say that in real life though. I'm a mid-western Canadian, eh. lol

And that's big owwwwcheez on the pipe!!

Me I have decided on night-lunch/pre-breakfast, some netflix and a brief sojourn on SR. I spent too many nights during my drinking days fighting for sleep. I'd rather not do it sober too, and I've been lucky so far sleepwise this go round. Nothing a little protein and carbs won't fix. I tell you though, I am suuuure craving a ciggy and a coffee... that just sounds like a little slice of heaven right now.

Hey, did our class ever do intro posts on how they got started here and in our class? I was just thinking about that post March13 posted in the Newcomers forum. It was lovely. I'd love to hear everyone's stories if they're on here already... or if they're not.

WAIT- is yanks offensive? I never stopped to think about this before. My apologies if so. Feel free to call me a quack.

Is it also true that Yankee Doodle went to town, and did he call his pony or his cap Macaroni?

*things I can google at 4 am*

Lol. Yes he did!!! What a silly question. Everybody outside of the US calls Americans yanks. I'm certain it's not offensive delizadee.

In NZ we call college - high school or secondary school - for 13/14 year olds - 17/18 year olds. And study after that is called university.

Is college in the US like our university?

College equals university, but can refer to 2 year or 4 year colleges, whereas university refers to four year institutions. It's proper to say, "I went to college at the Univeristy of ____" "University" is slightly more formal than saying "college."
